SIMFEROPOL/AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Occupants hang out the propaganda banners along the whole length of Kirov Street - the main street of the Crimean capital.

The ‘patriotic’ banners read: "Our strength lies in unity of Russia", "United, we are invincible”, "We are Russia", “Friendship is great - Motherland is strong”, “We are for unity”, “Unity, Strength and Success”, “We are strong united in spirit.”

The banners are made in the colors of the Russian flag (tricolor).

Apparently the local authorities prepared the propaganda banners for "celebration" of the 2nd anniversary of the annexation of Crimea held in Russia on March 16-18.
